Dating to c.1860-1870, this American-made gold brooch is as fresh in 2016 as the day it was made, and is a wonderfully-wearable jewel!
Measuring 2 1/4" long x 1/2" wide x 1/2" thick, this stellar brooch once adorned the collar of a lady of wealth and fashion, and can be worn in any number of ways today! Wrought from 14k gold with a 22k wash, the weight and quality of this brooch is SO impressive! The two terminals boast detailed gold granulation and wire work, and the center of the brooch is actually woven from several strands of high-karat gold! The result is a beautifully-designed and perfectly-constructed brooch which will easily last another 150 years with proper care!
This brooch is in 100% all original, untouched condition; it appears as if it had rarely been worn! The brooch retains its original "T and C" clasp, and is as pristine as the most discerning collector could hope for! This brooch has not been cleaned, and the gold has built up a luscious age patina that can only come with the passing of generations. Weighing in at 10.99 grams of solid 14k gold, this is one of the best Etruscan Revival examples of its kind I have acquired in many seasons!
If you love the finest in Victorian jewelry, this brooch will light up your collar, lapel, or sweater! It would also make a stellar gift for any lady fond of the best in Etruscan Revival jewelry, and will be shipped in a gift box. Do not miss this American Victorian beauty; it is priced for quick sale, up to 30-day layaway is available, and USPS Priority mail shipping is FREE!
